40 Acts

Like many others, I've signed up to 40 acts for lent and day one encourages me to think about generosity.

If you want to read all about it - the link is here....

40 acts, gives you 3 options of how to respond - depending on the time you have available, and I have decided to go with the second option, of writing a journal (well blog) to document all the things you learn over the next 40 days, and especially today to write a list of those you would like to bless during this season of Lent. And so, although I know I'm not very good at sticking to these sort of things, I will attempt to write something each day.

I cannot make a list of the people I would like to bless, as for some of them it's a personal / confidential reason - but this morning, in a short act of communion for Ash Wednesday, I asked God to bless all the funeral directors and Coroners who, at least around here, are incredibly busy at this time. There doesn't seem to be a day in which I do not hear of someone that has died, and of course this brings pressures and sadness for many people - especially as there can be a long delay before the funeral can take place.

I wonder, whether you have signed up for the 40 acts or not, who you would like to bless today??
